I don’t usually cover education issues but I could not help having my mind boggled by this story in the Telegraph today.
Brighton and Hove are a minority Labour governed council. Although the DfES supported the application of the first Montessori school in the country to join the state sector the council and the schools adjudicator were against. The schools adjudictor said: “”With its new facilities, it might prove attractive to more families.”
Sounds just like John Prescott and his comments about the problem with good schools was that everyone would want to go there. Better crap schools for all than a situation where some schools can actually provide an example of how to do better. Old Labour is alive and well on the south coast.
